If you happen to be a fan of CyanogenMod and are willing to live on the edge in terms of ROMs, there is now a CM10.1 nightly build available for the Nexus 4. In addition, a similar ROM is also being worked on for the Nexus 10 tablet.
While CyanogenMod 10 has recently come available as a stable release (for select devices), we are already hearing talk of the 4.2 merger — CyanogenMod 10.1. Except while there is talk and there is progress being made, a recent status update suggests any availability is still some time away.
While some seem to have learned their lesson and are extending a helping hand to the growing independent developer community, others are still stubbornly locking bootloaders and going out of their way to stop us from poking our noses into our phones’ internals.
The first Android 4.2-based custom ROM is already up for grabs via the XDA forum, and, while it’s far from fully functional, it’s definitely a promising start.
CyanogenMod 10 Stable has launched for a select few smartphones. While additional support is coming, the devices that are supported at the moment include the Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Captivate, Samsung Galaxy S2 and the LG Optimus Black.
We’ve suspected for a while that CM10 was going to be legendary once it was going to be deemed stable, but we’re hearing all sorts of exciting new things that make us think we’re still underestimating the project’s potential.
Despite the gloomy picture some rumors painted for Galaxy S3 users in the US a few weeks back, Samsung’s flagship has started receiving official Jelly Bean “butter”. Sprint has been the first carrier to roll out the new software package, while Verizon seems to now be next in line.
There have been promises of Jelly Bean upgrades for the Droid Razr HD and Maxx HD to happen “by the end of the year” from the get-go, but we know better than to rely on words. Or do we?
Arriving in the expected timeframe, CyanogenMod has introduced the latest in their M Series of builds. This latest arrives as CyanogenMod 10 M2, the second in the monthly series and is now available for select Android tablets and smartphones.
It shouldn’t take long now for the official Android 4.1 update to hit the HTC One X, but if you feel like you simply can’t wait anymore there is one way to flash a rather stable unofficial Jelly Bean port on your phone.
